Healthy, delicious snacks are what we do, but we also recognize that it's all about how you do it. We aim for sustainability at every step, starting in the Amazon Rainforest, where our acai is ethically harvested.
acai harvested from the Amazon Rainforest
Our founder served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Amazon Rainforest, and that's where many of our fruits are harvested - in partnership with the local people, to help create economic opportunity that lets them stay true to their culture and way of life, while staying in balance with Mother Nature.
Renewable and sustainable, harvesting acai and other wild fruits gives the indigenous communities a way to make a living, while protecting themselves from exploitation by mining, logging, etc.
experience the amazon in person
We're excited to announce that starting September 1st, we're partnering with Traverse Journeys to spread the message of social enterprise. Traverse Journeys is dedicated to sustainable tourism - traveling with a purpose that benefits both the traveler and the community. In October of 2017 and February of 2018, Traverse Journeys is taking a trip to the Ecuadorian Amazon!
providing Local, Full Wage Jobs to People in Need
Peaceful Fruits is about eco-friendly economic opportunity from the Amazon all the way to Akron, Ohio where we are based. In partnership with two local non profits organizations, Hattie Larlham and Blick Center, we are proud to have created more than 25 full wage jobs for people with disabilities.
And promoting the importance of creating Hope for people with Disabilities Nationally
The Autism Hope Alliance is the first non-profit foundation for Autism to emerge from the natural foods industry. We like that a lot, because we think good food should do good!
Supporting people in need - especially those dealing with issues like Autism and disabilities - is an important part of taking care of our community. And we think business has a big part to play.
